Correspondingly, this paper analyses the published articles on the comparisons of regional planning policies in cross-national countries. The main aim is to understand the theoretical framework and methodology that have been used and deduce a comparative approach understanding through existing literature. The methodological approach of this essay includes a review of scientific articles, which compare the regional planning policies between UK and the Netherlands. Within this framework the research questions will be like:
MAJOR QUESTION How are the comparative public policy analyses on regional planning done in academic literature?
MINOR QUESTION A What are the structural features of the selected resources?
MINOR QUESTION B What are the strengths and shortcomings of the comparative analyses?
1.1. Theoretical Framework
Within effects of globalization and high-interaction of knowledge, new learning methods have been developed to improve spatial planning tools and pubic policies. According to Doods (2013), comparative policy researches have been increased considerably in the last decade; to understand the fundamental drivers of the policy-making process.
